Pod Of Sperm Whales Beached Dead On UK East Coast
Three dead sperm whales found washed up on a beach in Lincolnshire are "believed to be from the same pod" as a whale which died at Hunstanton.

HM Coastguard said two of the whales were found on a beach near Skegness at about 20:30 GMT on Saturday, while a third was discovered earlier.

The Cetacean Strandings Investigation Programme will examine the bodies.

The pod was spotted off the Norfolk coast on Friday before the Hunstanton whale died after becoming stranded.

HM Coastguard said it believed the Skegness and Hunstanton whales to be from the same pod.

It has cordoned off the bodies and is asking the public to keep its distance.

Adam Holmes, the RNLI station press officer for Skegness, said the town was "as busy as a bank holiday" as crowds gathered to look at the bodies.

Sperm whales stranded in UK may be part of beached German and Dutch pods

Five sperm whales stranded on the east coast of England were probably from the same pods as the 12 that washed up on coastlines in Germany and the Netherlands, according to the lead pathologist examining the Lincolnshire whales.

Rob Deaville, project manager at the UK Cetacean Strandings Investigation Programme, said it was “reasonable to assume” that the pods entered the North Sea together in the hunt for food.

“The question that’s left still hanging is why they came in the North Sea in the first place and whether the French, the German events are all connected in some way,” he said on Tuesday.

“I think it’s reasonable to assume that the pods – because there can be more than one pod – came in at the same time, given the spatial and temporal stranding events. I think that’s a reasonable assumption to make.”

Five of the male sperm whales had not eaten for some time when they became stranded in shallow waters around Skegness and Norfolk over the weekend and later died. Another 12 had washed up on the Dutch island of Texel and the German islands of Wangerooge and Helgoland since 11 January.
